our city contracts that the companies that do service for us do not own the data that they generate from us, that they will have a contractual obligation to share that with the city so that we can mine that to the rest of the city, that's advance of opportunities for everybody. i know at the heart of sharing this data, there is going to be a lot more jobs created, a lot more people out therein venting new ways to establish small businesses that will improve the way we live and work and play in the city. and we look forward to great events like a super bowl host or something like that, we're going to be able to give people a really rich amount of programs that they could access from here to santa clara to san jose. we can act regionally with our data and we can join and continue to be in the great city of san francisco. so, i want to thank all of the people, all of the different starting up companies here and those that are inventing with us, thank them for celebrating innovation month in such a exemplary way. and i think we're going to have a lot more to announce before this month i

for city elective office." because that presumes that that person has not yet qualified, and that the purpose of the endeavor is to have them be a qualified candidate. it's not to support the election of the that person. it's really more about getting them to be a qualified candidate and i'm actually thinking less about the draft someone over the summer or draft someone as a written that actually happened in 1999 in ammiano for mayor. i recall some of that, but try not to recall all of it this sec. you could have the same efforts that happened with "run he had run," and progress for all," in the context of a write-in campaign and i'm not sure under this definition it would get captured. that is why i'm hung up on qualification versus election. >> may i ask you a question about that? >> sure. >> it's not clear to me why that is materially different from what we have? >> well, again it's not necessarily the election of a person. that is not necessarily the goal of the committee or the committee would assert that is not their goal. it's to get them to run and, in fact
and that would create a lot of land for housing for this city. thank you. >> would you like to offer public comment? you can leave it right there. thank you. is there any additional general public comment? >> good afternoon president fong and commission. my name is karen mint and i am a business owner and resident of the dog patch area. i would like to oppose the addition of the nine cell phone towers slated to go in on 3rd street. >> that is an item actually on the agenda. you will have an opportunity to speak to it when we get to it. >> thank you very much. >> thank you. any -- okay. >> hello how are you doing? i am eric barrett. i'm a real estate agent that does leasing and i just wanted to state that in general we see a great demand for individuals and couples for smaller apartments in the city and what we find is that most of those individuals are priced out of the market, and having this opportunity to create a greater number of units in san francisco is a great benefit to all those individuals that want to be here in the city, so that's all i wanted to say. thank you very m

amends how parking bonds are treated. parking bonds are required of operators to protect the city's interest and provide security for the taxes that the operator holds prior to remitting them to the city. so what happens is when you or i go and park in a parking lot, and we make a payment, we're actually paying the tax at that time. and the operator holds onto that and remit it's a month later. since those operators are holding onto those tax dollars on behalf of the city, we do require some security for that. currently there are seven different levels of bonding required based on how much gross receipt yours operation may have. what we heard back from the park administration after this change was made in late 2010 and instituted in 2011 these were very large bans and in many cases if you had a small increase in your revenues, you could see a doubling of your bonding requirement. so for instance an operator who just had under $1 million in receipts from one year that moved to just over $1 million in receipts the following year would have a doubling of their bond from $200,000 t
and incompatible useds, and as kind of the test lab for mixed use in this city we are the first mixed use district that was established in 1990. we have a pretty good feel as to what works and what doesn't. clearly our goal is not to banish any incompatible uses. our goal is to figure out how to deal with all of them. you're going be hearing a lot more about this as the central corridor plan comes before you because at its extreme, and i might add in a rather pollyannish way, they tend to put a lot of potentially incompatible uses all together. you will have housing. you will have office. you will have pdr, and you will have night time entertainment, and when they get to discussing how they're going to make all of that work i hope you will remember the discussion that we're having today. okay. everybody loves fun. you can't be against fun, and night time entertainment is an integral part of the fabric of south of market, so let me make it very clear from the very start there was never any notion of restricting -- putting on any additional restrictions on night time entertainment. our goal
separately to the downtown extension. what the discussions that i have had with the city have not been to realign downtown extension, it is what to do with the yard and four and this what for do with the approaching for the south, which was never thought of dtx or any extension. we were extending from the existing station, to downtown. >> right. >> and that really does not take on the responsibility for the south. >> right. >> and we would put them as partners. >> thank you. >> director lloyd wanted to comment as well. >> thank you. >> just a comment that we at cal train are moving forward with the electricitifiation and so we are moving forward and we are going to move forward regardless on what happens on the high speed rail. we are working with them to possibly not do additional track work other than separations other than grade separations which i believe in holely as one of the big things to get down. but that is our procedure. we are moving forward and we will cooperate completely with your staff. and also installing the old coast daylight and i am on the board that and and that
